I am in the same Race, Same Dilemma waiting to buy my first ever iPad. And I am terribly...terribly... excited and anxious about it. I am in the same confusion should I buy the iPad-2 now when we are so close to the Launch of the new iPad-3. I also feel, even the current iPad-2 is such a amazing thing that it sends shivers down my spine if I think for a second what if Apple mess up with the iPad-3 with its screen with its shape, with its weight and battery. But someone here on another thread suggested me this idea which I thought made a lot of sense, My original question to him was what if I didn't like the new iPad-3 with its IGZO technology screen display and by then even the iPad-2 production would have stopped. What he suggested was just from the time the iPad-3 is launched from that very day there would be reviews about it all over the world and till then even iPad-2 would be still be available so make your comparison then and act fast and buy which ever you think is the best. So the key is if you are confused between buying iPad-2 and wait for iPad-3 the answer is certainly wait now but be alert and act fast as soon as the new iPad-3 is launched. If you wanna buy the new iPad-3 or go with the iPad-2 !
